Also, I think this is the first time they released their yeast to the public. Not sure about that; someone else may know.

that's pretty cool for them to do that.. and it makes sense also.. thanks!

I am fairly certain the PacMan contributes very much to the clean finish of their products using it.

Pacman yeast gets it name from it's ability to gobble down just about anything. Attenuation can run 80% or better. It is also clean fermenting and temperature tolerant. As a liquid yeast, it's about as close to Nottingham as you can get.

You know, I have 3 packs of yeast from Northern Brewer in my cart and the estimated shipping weight is 2lbs?? I am missing something?

[edit]Do they really ship it with almost 2 lbs of ice packs?[/edit]

At the LHBS here in Salem, OR (Homebrew Heaven) ROGUE PACMAN is ALWAYS in stock. Has been for about a year or more now. 3 months ago I brewed my harvest ale with it. I was just down there yesterday and decided to try the WYeast short run yeast for my ESB instead of ROGUE PACMAN. It's still in stock. Anyone else get it when they want at their LHBS?
